People magazine's 'Most Beautiful' cover for 2014 has been online for seven blissful, controversy-free hours. Unlike last year's issue — which featured Gwyneth Paltrow just days after the actress and lifestyle entrepreneur had been crowned "Most Hated" celebrity by tabloid magazine Star —  this year's edition, starring the universally beloved Lupita Nyong'o, has not angered anyone. The Internet saw Lupita's "Most Beautiful" cover and said, "cool! yes! perf!" And then everyone moved on to gawk at the insane menu at Guy Fieri's new Las Vegas restaurant, which features "won-tacos" drizzled in "wow-sabi."

But no, sorry — Radar Online is not having any of it. The gossip website wants outrage, and found a way to dredge some up. The outlet spoke with a photography "expect" (they mean "expert") who "believes the famed magazine used creative lighting to brighten the breakout actress’ skin tone and make her look lighter." Oy. "Epic Photoshop fail!" says Radar Online. "Leave me alone, I have a pounding headache!" says Nika.
